Review of Princess Alexandra House

The staff are very considerate and kind to residents, speaking to my aunt, who has been at the home for approximately 2 years. She said she would not change anything as they are all so nice and the food is great. She has been in 2 other homes and this is by far the best. She would be very upset if she ever had to move anywhere else.
